First Line: The District Attorney for Cumberland County, North Carolina, Marc Sherman, pushed the old wooden captain’s chair away from the prosecution, and it made a harsh, scraping eeek in the nearly silent courtroom.

Alex Cross is ready to resign from the D.C. police force. But there will be one last case that he simply can’t refuse before he can resign. His best friend and partner, John Sampson, comes to Alex asking him to help him prove that a good friend of John’s has been framed for murder and will be executed. His accusers are the United States Army. Tackling such a case will be more of a challenge than they could ever imagine. And this case goes deeper than either of them would have ever thought.

I love this series, and this was another good installment. While this one was not as good as my personal favorite in the series (Roses are Red) this one was still a good strong book. I like the direction that Alex Cross is going in in regards to his personal life. It will be interesting to see how things end up for John and Alex in the next few books.

Last Night Was Awful!!

And by awful, I mean awful!! I had a terrible virus on my computer last night. It took over my whole computer. I couldn’t open ANY of my files. $89 and 2 hours on the phone with McAfee later and the virus was gone!!

And of course what was the first thing that came to my mind: Oh my goodness, my reading lists are in Word Documents, I don’t want to lose them!! So I’m thinking about keeping a paper journal as well as an electronic version. Currently I keep a Word Document, one for each year since 2007, that lists the Title, Copyright and my rating for each book that I read. I’m kind of looking for a new system to keep my information. So I’m posing a question to all my readers: What kind of a system do you use to keep track of your reading? I’m just trying to get some feedback so that I can find a system that will work for me. Any and all advice is greatly welcome! Thanks in advance!!!
